Are you wondering how to sync notifications between multiple Android devices such as phones and tablets? You have come to the right place.
In the age of smartphones and tablets, most of the people have at least two gadgets, if not more. For instance, a person has two mobile phones or a mobile phone and a tablet or a mobile phone and a PC. While some of the apps can be used on multiple devices, which means you get its notification on all the devices such as Facebook app, Messenger app or Twitter. But there are some other apps like WhatsApp that do not support multiple devices. For these apps, it becomes quite difficult to keep track of notifications.
To elaborate, for instance, if you have an app that you don’t want to install on all devices yet want to receive its notification on all devices, Android doesn’t provide any built-in method to achieve it. But, throw in a third party app and all your problems will be solved. The app goes by the name “Desktop notifications” and is available free from the Google Play Store.
The Desktop notifications app is a nice app that does its job perfectly. It syncs the notification among all the connected devices (PC, mobile, tablet). Not only that, it also lets you clear notifications on one device and it will be cleared from all connected devices. By connected devices, we mean you should sign into all the devices with the same Google account to pair notifications.
